Erie Rock Bands

Remember the Erie rock bands Arkay IV, the Pulse, Dirty Looks or Brother’s Keeper?

Be sure to check out the display at the Blasco Library, which features a picture of Train’s Pat Monahan, who had long, flowing hair when he sang for X-it. There are also pictures of Pistol Whip performing in the Children’s Room at the old Perry Square library. The display, which runs thru May 7th, also includes photos, CDs and press clippings of Clockwise, the Stabilizers and other local bands.

Playaway Audiobooks

We have Playaway audiobooks at the Blasco Library.

Playaways are like an mp3 player that is loaded with just one title.

Just turn on the Playaway, add headphones, press play, and enjoy a full-length book.

Playaways check out for three weeks, just like books.

New titles added recently include The Confession by John Grisham and The Autobiography of Mark Twain, volume 1, edited by Harriet Elinor Smith.
